This is Ron.

I'm going to read a nice story to you,
and you're going to read along with me!

This is the story of Curious George. I read this story when I was a kid, and now it's your turn!

Here's what you do:

  • On each page, you'll see these things (look at the picture above to help you understand):
    • The text, in English, of the story. Some words and phrases will be colored RED. Also, you will see...
    • the picture that goes with the text. You will also see...
    • little pictures that you can click. These pictures do these things:
    • The "Listen" picture will start the reading.
      When you click on this picture, you will hear me read the story to you.

      The "Next Page" picture advances to the next page of the story.
      Click this picture when you're finished with the page you're looking at.

      The "Previous Page" picture backs up to the previous page of the story; the page you may have already read.
      Click this picture if you want to review earlier pages.

  • I will read each page in a special way:
    • First, I will simply read the page, without stopping. Just listen carefully and quietly read along in the text.
    • Then you will hear me say, "Your turn!"
    • At this point, you will hear me say words and lines from the story. When you hear silence (quiet) in the reading, that means it's your turn to practice saying the word or words I just said.

      Note that I will be drilling you on the RED words and phrases.

    • When we're done going over this page, you'll hear me say, "Turn the page!" Click on the "Next Page" picture to advance to the next page.

  • Are you ready to try?

Good luck!
